Sara @ On Simplicity is asking What 3 Things You Are Dying To Learn and you know I had to play along and answer. I don’t think we ever finish our “education” there is always something new we want to know and if you aren’t learning anymore, are you really living? I know my son teaches me something new every day at least. But here are three things I’d love to learn:
- A new language – my sister is learning Japanese and swears it’s an easy language to learn and I’m so envious. I know a teensie tiny bit of French and even my knowledge of that is horrid. Considering how much I love to travel and how many places I’d like to go, it would be helpful to learn more languages, don’t you think? Languages I’d LOVE to learn include but are not limited to: French, Spanish, Gaelic, Italian, Japanese & German.
- The true story of everyone I know – we know people, but how well do we really know them? I’d venture to guess that I hardly know my own parents at all. I want to know the true story of who they are, how they met, why their marriage didn’t work out, and how they feel about their lives and what they’ve done with themselves. Ditto for everyone else I know, but obviously with different questions as everyone’s lives are different.
- I would love to be crafty – my husband picks up crafts like it ain’t no thang. Sewing, knitting, crocheting – EASY according to him. PAIN IN MY ALREADY GRIEVOUSLY PAINED NECK, according to me. My fingers lack all coordination known to man, and any craft I pick up has that horrible “I did it myself” look to it, if in fact, I ever finish it. I don’t knit. I don’t sew. I don’t crochet. I don’t draw. I don’t paint. I don’t play an instrument (I know that isn’t a craft but it seems to go hand in hand for similar reasons).
I’ll stop there because it’s a THREE thing question but there’s so much more I’d love to learn in fields like photography, cooking, baking, math, science, politics, and more…
But, more importantly, what three things would you like to learn? I look forward to reading your thoughts on this in the comments section below. 🙂
